Perfect Brown Rice

Normally, I’m not a fan of brown rice. But, that has all changed tonight! I know that it’s way better for you, but I could never get it to turn out right.

It’s either too dry, too watery or too bland; never again.

Baked Brown Rice  (This served our family of 5, with lunch for the husband and a little left for me )

  • 1.5 cups brown rice
  • 2.5 cups chicken broth (or any other broth, or water)
  • 1 Tablespoon Earth Balance
  • Salt, Pepper, Garlic Salt (to taste)

Bring above to a boil while you’re waiting for the oven to pre-heat to 375. Once it reaches a boil, place into an oven safe dish, cover and bake at 375 for 60 minutes.

Uncover and stir and then let sit for about 10 minutes, stir again and serve. I’m not kidding when I say this was perfect. It wasn’t watery or dry and had the perfect amount of seasoning. So, so, so good!!!! I saved just enough for a special breakfast tomorrow that will have me dreaming happy dreams tonight.

Along with the rice, I made baked BBQ pork chops (cooked the same time and heat as the rice) and green beans.

I may or may not have licked the plate.
